The beginning of this episode shows Riley running from an insurance agent who keeps trying to sell him insurance. The agent finally chases him into a phone booth, and the exchange is really quite humorous. Before this happened, Riley was ordering some meat for Peg. The insurance calls for a physical in which the doctor calls with information on test results. Babs takes that message before rushing out the door. Later, Junior takes a message about the meat. What follows is a very humorous night where Riley is sure he's dying and the others try to calm him down.

Riley manages to once again dramatize a situation, only to be disappointed in the end. The result is quite humorous, but we are left wondering just exactly what were those test results?
